The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu is one of the world’s most famous Hikes. Essentially the Inca Trail is a mountainous jungle hike leading to the sacred Inca city of Machu Picchu. The 45km trek is usually covered in 4 days, arriving at Machu Picchu. The Inca Trail is Peru's best known hike, combining a stunning mix of Inca ruins, mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest and rich sub-tropical jungle. Over 250 species of orchid have been counted in the Machu Picchu Historic Sanctuary.
